Grateful for support

To the editor:

On behalf of myself and my family, I would like to express my deepest appreciation to the St. Edmond softball teams (high school and middle school) for their efforts in organizing the recent Allison Huss Benefit held on June 25th at Harlan and Hazel Rogers Sports Complex.

I was recently diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia and am currently undergoing treatment at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics in Iowa City.

I would also like to thank the outpouring support of the Fort Dodge community and the following: raffle items and donations from area businesses; Gael softball and coaching staff; Fort Dodge Parks and Recreation; Fort Dodge Dodgers; Algona, Waukee and Algona Garrigan softball and basketball teams, coaches, parents and fans; The Messenger; Three Eagles Communications; and MyFortDodge.com – Sports Photography.

I am truly blessed for my family, friends, businesses, schools and the entire Fort Dodge community. The support has given me and my family a tremendous amount of strength during my journey.

I am forever grateful.

Allison Huss and Family
